Why do you read a book?

When you go to the book store or the library why do you pick up that book in the conner shelf? What makes you keep reading, is it the characters, the plot, the writing style, or something different entirely? First off I am trying to write a book and I was just wondering why people might even look at my book when it's published.

I read books when i am bored . They also give me very nice knowledge and wisdom about other things specially if it's an inspirational book. Fantasy story books gave a new way of enjoying and killing time in just a corner...

i start reading a book, if its title sounds interesting but what keeps me reading it is its uniqueness, its characters, plot and writing style also affects, but i think every reader just want a difference, difference to the other books they have read before, simply every reader just wants originality.

the main reason i read a book is to get information about a certain subject that i am curious or i want to learn about. if don't like the subject of the book, i won't even bother to pick it up, i would just ignore it and never look at it again unless i can relate to that book some time in my life, then i would have a little bit of feeling about it and maybe i would pick it up if it gets more interesting.
